I've been playing video games since the early 90's. At this point I'd say I've played a good split of games that have blown my mind and straight up garbage.

In this feature I want to share 25 of my favorite games, all for their own reasons. This is more a list of games I happen to think were of great importance, but I'm willing to be that if you're reading this you disagree with me on some of the picks (maybe all of them?).

Don't agree? Tell us what games really should have been on here instead in the comments below. In the meantime, let's look at some of the greatest electronic entertainment humanity has ever had. And don't forget to click the titles for some fun soundboards, flash videos, and articles!

Update: Before we get started, here are some honorable mentions by the eBaum's World Gaming community:

Breath of Fire
Chrono Trigger
Halo: Combat Evolved
Rome: Total War
Streets of Rage
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Any game mentioned by two or more comments will be added to the above list.
